Ate with friends from out of town and a one year old baby. Front door on side in parking lot. Weather was great in the evening, so ate outside on the deck. Perfect for families. Beautiful background music. Beach close enough to stroll to as was the little shopping district. No parking problems. Had appetizers, soup, dinner and dessert. All... More

Any restaurant that survives more than two decades in a food town like Carlsbad, must be doing something right. The Armenian Cafe continues to not disappoint each and every year. Breakfast, lunch or dinner, these guys provide consistently good food that is true to their genre.

The Armenian cafe has been in Carlsbad for many years. They serve very tasty Armenian and Lebanese food. I like the seasonings on the meats. They serve kabobs (on skewers) and sandwiches on pita bread. The meals come with a lemon soup which is excellent and very flavorful. We ate lunch on the patio and had a nice ocean breeze... More

Been here a few times for business luncheons. Food is always good and fresh. Can't beat the hummus dip! My favorite is the Chicken Platter. Nice patio with view of the ocean too.

This restaurant faces the ocean and since most seats are outside, there is a nice view of both the shore and the promenade, busy with lots of people walking along the beachfront. The food is very good, with large portions and reasonable prices.

Best gyros I've had in a long time. Everything tastes really fresh...including the pitas. Service was good and friendly, but the food took slightly longer because it IS fresh. Nice surroundings. We will return often.

Unfortunately, we only got here once as they were always packed the other times we tried. If you are lucky, you will get a table next to the railing which offers the run-of-the-mill stunning Pacific Ocean views. We aren't exactly up on our knowledge of what constitutes Armenian food. But what we chose and got was very good. The chicken... More
